Description Simon Pieters 2008-11-27 22:26:49 UTC
The <input> bookkeeping details aren't scraping friendly in that they aren't consistent. Use-case: (It might be easier to scrape the summary table but I figure it's better to scrape the normative material...)

They're _supposed_ to be consistent, in what way aren't they?
Comment 2 Simon Pieters 2008-11-27 23:25:29 UTC
I was looking at the first paragraph, where sometimes it was enumerating the allowed attributes, sometimes talking about the value, and sometimes about banned attributes. I didn't realize that there wouldn't be a paragraph at all when there are no allowed common attributes or nothing to say about value...

Sorry for the noise.
